Says Alex Zanardi
Alex Zanardi has joined a growing list of sceptics who think Kimi Raikkonen
and Ferrari may not be a match made in heaven.
Finn Raikkonen, 27, has moved to the Maranello based team to replace the retiring Michael Schumacher
, but some have suggested
that he is not as complete a package as the great German.
"Raikkonen went to Ferrari because his McLarens always broke down," Italian Zanardi, who last drove in formula one for Williams in 1999, told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
He continued : "But now it seems like his red car is always broken and (Ron) Dennis' machines run like clockwork."
Zanardi singles out reigning back to back title winner Fernando Alonso
as his favourite for the 2007 season, but he also vowed to keep an eye on the Spaniard's rookie teammate. "Hamilton looks fast and could make life difficult for Alonso," Zanardi predicted.
